Cody Rhodes Makes Statement about Bray Wyatt—Ever-Rise Is Coming To Dynamite

With the sudden release of a whole bunch of wrestlers from WWE, there’s a lot to expect in the ways of new signings over at AEW for sure, so Cody Rhodes most definitely chimed in on the release of one Bray Wyatt. His comments are below. Also in this article…details on Ever-Rise’s release and sudden arrival to AEW.

Cody Rhodes on Bray Wyatt Release

These comments were made via a promotional media call, reported by eWrestling News:

“…Bray Wyatt, before he was Bray Wyatt, was my rookie at the second season of NXT. The Rotunda family and the Rhodes family certainly go way back. I can’t comment on if I see a spot for him (in AEW), but I can tell you, (he’s) an incredibly creative individual and an incredibly creative man. Whenever I see someone like that lose their job or move into the next phase in their career, as someone who left WWE on my own, I can’t be everyone’s sounding board but I really want to be. I would have never thought Matt Cardona would be GCW Champion and getting pelted with trash, but I should have thought he would be doing something. To circle back to Bray, I can’t comment if he fits with us, but I can say that if he has an ounce of passion for this, he can fit anywhere because he’s a special…”

On the topic of available talent made possible by these releases or other circumstances he said:

“…If there’s a free agent out there that can move the needle and be something significant for us, I personally, I’m not saying thing from the company perspective, personally, I think you have to go after them. Does that change the landscape of the show and the roster? For sure, but that is an area where, as much as things can get personal, it is business. No one is immune from that. We’re doing wonderful. There’s a lot of AEW programming and room has opened up, but there’s not incredibly that much more room…I don’t know of the specifics (in the number of free agents to sign), but if you’re asking me, I say the more the merrier. It’s very fulfilling for me, personally as a wrestler — I hope the Bucks and Kenny feel this way as well — it’s very fulfilling to know that three years ago not a lot of people believed in the revolution. The fans believed and that’s why it existed, but not a lot of people believed and they weren’t comfortable. We set this table and now new people can eat. Tony, of course, is at the head of all of that…”

Rising to the occasion

Ever-Rise had gained quite a bit of steam most recently on NXT TV, their angle one of a humoristic genre and it was going over well with fans, but in a mysterious move—as there have been so many mysterious and illogical moves recently in WWE—WWE released the duo, despite them doing well. They were released in June…on the 25th, to be exact.

Not to fear, fans, as the boys will be on AEW TV this very week, according to WrestlingInc, and in tag team action to boot.

They, Matt Lee and Jeff Parker are now known as 2.0, which sounds extremely appropriate.
